Alpha Media’s 94.5 KBAY FM and 92.1 KKDV announced today the debut of Bay Country on two signals.

Market Manager, David Drutz shares, “With the recent sale of KRTY, the County format would have no longer been offered.  We feel strongly that Country is a format that the market deserves, and we are excited to keep it alive and well in the Bay Area with much greater coverage than ever before.”

The soon to be announced local staff will be joined by The Bobby Bones Show, effective April 15th. The CMA and ACM Award-winning Country radio show will broadcast weekday mornings from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. PST.

Each morning, Bobby Bones and his co-hosts Amy, Lunchbox and Eddie welcome the biggest names in Country music and entertain listeners with their unique mix of pop-culture news and information, crazy stunts, and hilarious conversations. Nationally syndicated by Premiere Networks, The Bobby Bones Show broadcasts to over 150 stations and is the #1 Country morning show in the U.S. with millions of weekly listeners. 

“The team at Alpha are amazing partners. And thank you, EVP Phil Becker who is changing the industry daily, which I would say even if he wasn’t instrumental in the growth of my show. I can’t wait to get on in the Bay Area and make some new friends every morning,” said Bones.
